Intro: McGill-Toolen's Carl Lee

Carl Lee, wide receiver from Mobile-McGill-Toolen, Ala., is an emerging prospect who should begin attracting major attention. He has scored several touchdowns in his first year for the Yellowjackets including a score in last week's win against a nationally ranked team. Andrew Bone talked with the class of 2013 prospect.


"It was a great win for us," Carl Lee said of McGill-Toolen's win against Daphne. "It was great experience for our young guys. Overall it was a tough game. We won the battle on special teams. That was the difference.

"I definitely feel like this gives us a momentum boost heading into the playoffs. A lot of players on our team have a lot of heart. We play hard. That's mainly because we have great coaches."

Lee has eight touchdowns this fall after transferring from Texas. The 6-foot-4, 189-pound junior hasn't received any college interest as of yet. He does plan to take his first unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa.

"We were supposed to go to Alabama this past weekend, but didn't make it up there," said Lee. "We are going up for the LSU game. I can't wait to see it. I think Alabama is going to win. I want them to win.

Lee shared more of this thoughts on the in-state SEC school.

"I think Alabama is a pretty good team," he said. "I think they are the best team in college football. They have a tough defense. You can't move the ball on them. Their quarterback [A..J McCarron] is really maturing out there."

Lee discussed his strengths as a player and areas to improve.

"I would say my blocking, route running and catching the ball are my biggest strengths," he said. "I want to get in and out of my breaks faster. I want to get off jams coming off the ball."
